Help for the flood victims continues under RMC ACS leadership
More than 700 volunteers helped over the weekend at the ACS DR collection/distribution center in Loveland, Colo., located near the center of the population affected by the recent massive flooding. As of September 22, 15,000 food items have been distributed and 12,000 pieces of clothing have been given out. The center is directed by Rocky Mountain Conference ACS DR Director Kathy Kissner with the help of several ACS DR volunteers who are taking on leadership roles.
Volunteers from the community are also helping. They are partnering with Salvation Army, the Mormon Church and some of the mega churches in the area. Campion Academy students so far have volunteered over 500 hours helping with flood relief in Colo., and the senior boys have helped in putting up freestanding shelving in the center.
They will be collecting through September 29 from the public, but will continue to accept donations from corporations and companies. They are beginning to serve people from nearby Weld County also. Supplies will be taken to Greeley and Estes Park, and they anticipate that Longmont, Jamestown, and Lyons residents will be coming to them. Watch the NAD ACS website and Facebook page for updates and for information on how to donate.
